A Merry Christmas for Thandi House

A Merry Christmas for Thandi House

Personal message

For the last 10 years, Thandi House, a registered non-profit children’s home in Chase Valley, Pietermaritzburg has provided a safe and loving home to over 25 abused, abandoned and neglected children, as well as children living with disabilities and teen mothers with no place to go.

To spread the joy of the festive season, Porky’s would like to raise R5000, to give the children of Thandi House a warm and memorable Christmas.

Christmas is a time of love and generosity. While we enjoy this time with our loved ones, it is important to reach out to those in need, so they can experience the joy of the christmas spirit. It’s so easy to get distracted and forget what the Christmas season is all about, you just need to see through the eyes of a child to be reminded” – says Porky’s People Co-founder, Theresa Pienaar

Funds raised will be administered by BackaBuddy NPC and used to purchase gifts for the children to the value of R200 and contribute to the festivities of the day.
